Fixing unplayable games
#1
Hello everyone. As some of you may have noticed, I have been pretty active on the forums last few weeks or months I should say. Firstly I was checking PCSX2's netplay capabilities. I had good success with playing games over hamachi and also with other xlink kai players (although lag was horrible).

After that I decided to recheck my collection of games to see how many unplayable games are still there. After lots of hard work I have found fixes for some of these unplayable games.

Quote:Note: These games have been added to pcsx2 gamefixes database on 2nd June 2015 and now should work just by enabling automatic gamefixes.


Spongebob Squarepants - The Movie [SLES 52895] (E)

Requires a patch attached below. NTSC version seems to have the same crc so it should also work.

Spongebob Squarepants - The Movie [SLES 52985] (E)

Requires a patch attached below.

Spongebob Squarepants - The Movie [SLES 52986] (E)

Requires a patch attached below.

Incredibles, The [SLES 52812] (E)

Requires a patch attached below. NTSC version has the same CRC so this patch works for NTSC version too.

Incredibles, The [SLES 52816] (E)

Requires a patch attached below.

Incredibles, The - Rise of the Underminer [SLUS 21217] (U)

Requires a patch attached below. PAL version can also be fixed if someone can send me elf.

Dead or Alive 2 - Hardcore [SCES 50003] (E)

Requires a patch attached below. The patch causes some missing sounds but the game can be played fine.

Dead or Alive 2 - Hardcore [SLUS 20071] (U)

The patch can be downloaded from below. It has been made by combining pseudonym's gamefix and Benji229's patch. The patch causes some missing sounds but the game can be played fine.

World Rally Championship 3 [SCES 51684] (E)

Requires a patch attached below. Also requires VU XGkick hack to fix ingame SPS.


NHL 2K8 [SLUS 21632] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.(Thanks to my nephew Harsh for finding the game). I haven't tested it fully since my graphics card is dead but it seems to work ok. I can fix other games of this series too if and when I get my hands on them.

NHL 2K7 [SLUS 21425] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.

Incredibles, The - Rise of the Underminer [SLES 53474] (E)

Can be played with patch attached below. Thanks to gladiator for providing crc and pgert for reminder.

Gadget Racers [SLUS 20225] (U)

Can be played with patch attached below. The patch also skips the videos but since there are only three videos (pretty boring too) you aren't missing much.

NHL 2K10 [SLUS 21914] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.

College Hoops 2K6 [SLUS 21232] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below. Videos get stuck but I think that's a separate issue. You can simply press start to skip them.

ESPN NFL 2K5 [SLUS 20919] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below. Without patch game hangs randomly but is fully playable with patch.

Quote:ESPN NBA 2K5 [SLUS 20920] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below else it will hang at first loading screen.

F1 2002 [SLES 50874] (E)

The game can be played with patch attached below else it will hang with controller not detected issue. Sorry but Videos have to be skipped for this. If using higher resolutions you will need to enable half pixel offset hack to fix black patches ingame.

Disney's Treasure Planet [SCUS 97146] (U) CRC=87C1609F
[SCES 51177] (E) CRC=B18207C5


Game seems to be playable if you enable EE timing hack (fixes hang before going ingame), Set EE roundmode to nearest (fixes characters flying into sky), EE clamping mode to extra+preserve sign (load areas correctly).

NBA 2K7 [SLUS 21424] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.

NBA 2K6 [SLUS 21233] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.

MLB 2K6 [SLUS 21235] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.

ESPN NBA Basketball [SLUS 20726] (U)

The game can be played with patch attached below.


Penny Racers [SLES 50252] (E)

Can be played with patch attached below. The patch also skips the videos but since there are only three videos (pretty boring too) you aren't missing much.
Neo Contra [SLUS 20961] (U)

Requires new patch attached below. This patch seems to work very well and sorts almost all issues with the game.

Neo Contra [SLES 52510] (E)

It would be great if, you could also share the method on how to do this process.

Tested the fix that you made for The Increibles - Rise of the Underminer (NTSC-U) in my PAL version (English, Italian & Spanish) SLES-53474 and works perfect.

The same for the games The Incredibles (PAL) (Spanish) SLES-52816 & Spongebob the Movie (PAL Spanish) SLES-52986. Both versions works. So I suppose that your fixes works for all the game versions.

Thanks a lot for fixing all these games.

Are you using exactly the same addresses or have you ported these using a constant offset?

Exactly the sames.
The only change is the crc that is the one for my version.

Can you tell crc of each of these so they can be added to the database?

Thanks for the updates. Even though I probably won't play any of these games it's nice to see you guys are still plugging away on the emulator.
